Enquête de satisfaction du premier examen gynécologique auprès d'étudiants en santé en Auvergne

Abstract : Background: Satisfaction has often been studied in gynæcology, but it rarely focused on the pelvic exam. Moreover, the former French care system used to condemn women to stay passive about their health. This study maintains the seeking of a liberated speech to help women regain an active place. Methods: The main objective of the study was to evaluate the satisfaction of the first pelvic exam with female students in health sector. A qualitative study with a descriptive and interpretative aim was led, and the participants were recruited on social medias. A total of ten women accepted to confide in semi-structured interview. Results: Women’s satisfaction rests on many criteria such as communication, attentiveness, kindness, gentleness, pain management and respect of intimacy. However, opinions differ when it comes to patient-carer relationship, some women prefer a closer relationship with health care workers and others prefer a strictly professional setting. In addition, we can note that the medical follow-up is under the influence of several factors like relatives or a first experiences. Discussion: The literature data on the satisfaction about a pelvic exam have been found and deepened. A link between a caregiver’s behavior and the way we feel as patient has emerged from this study. Conclusion: Women have high expectations about the behavior of a health professional when it comes to an intimate exam such as a pelvic exam. Many satisfaction criteria have surfaced.
